% of the fairfax county school budget comes from the state. drainsville supervisor john foust says any cut to that would hurt. >> we're going to be concerned about any cut in funding given how tight our budget is, especially given the fact we feel the state is underfunding us now. >> reporter: like the state, fairfax county has asked its departments to also prepare for the fiscal cliff and look for 5% in savings, but the biggest threat to the schools and the northern virginia economy is sequestration. economists predict up to a half a million jobs could be loss in the d.c. area that. would lead to vacant buildings and a sharp decline in commercial real estate taxes which is a major source of funding for local governments. >> i was working on a train track. >> reporter: foust grew up in johnstown, pennsylvania where steel mills created a bustling economy. today the mills are abandoned and jobs are scarce. >> it has certainly been nice to have the federal government, fall back on the government contractors and government employment, but personally i'm from an area that relied on the steel
